Did anyone see the Victoria Derbyshire programme about misogyny as hate crime this morning?

Talking about police forces potentially rolling out the Nottingham changes more widely. Link here - starts at 17 minutes approx. but there was more on it later too.
Some good discussion and points made I thought, not quite sure why the MRA guy had to be included but he was well countered by the two others on the panel and I liked some of the Twitter comments read out later in the programme grin

I saw it briefly...DP wondered why I was shouting at the tellybox when the Silly Woman was saying men intended wolf whistles as compliments...

Oh I only heard the MRA guy saying that, which was about what I expected from him. Might have missed it though, I only saw snatches of it first time round (it was on at work, with the sound off) so had to catch it up later.

OP: somebody really ought to use Capo Ferro on him. grin

Melanie Jeffs and Sarah Ditum were brilliant, as always. Calm, reasoned and intelligent. Sarah probably has the best feminist side eye in the business.

The MRE has form for being an irrelevance. And then having a public crywank about it on Twitter. Poor thing.

Doesn't look like he'd know his Thibault, so that should work grin
